Description

The purpose of the research was to get a picture of how Swedish youth relate to issues of sexual violence in the #metoo era. The study consisted of three focus groups with young people aged 18-23. They were shown clips from three films (Sixteen Candles, Redacted, Hip Hip Hora) in which young people interact within different contexts (such as in school) and were asked to compare the films with their own high schools or perceptions of other contexts in Swedish society.
The films’ subjects revolve around gender attitudes and attitudes toward sexual harassment/violence and two of the movies are teen movies depicting the discourse around these issues in school contexts among teens. The study tries to understand whether anything changed about the conversations regarding these attitudes after metoo.
The data consists of the transcriptions of the focus group interviews.

Young people (18-23) who went to high school in Sweden

Time Method

Sampling procedure

Non-probability
The sample contained young people between the ages 18 to 23 as we wanted to ensure that not many years had passed since their graduation so their memories were still fresh while they reflected upon their high school experiences during the interviews. In addition, we wanted their experiences relevant to current times since a high school context more than five years ago may be entirely different than to the present-day one.
